So my 7+ month old Jake, isn't microchipped. When Jake was a few months old I had his eyes done (checked) at a breeders clinic that also offered microchipping. I chose not to do it. I know if he were to get lost, and say his ID tags were lost as well, unlikely but possible, there would still be info to get him home. Here's the thing...microchips just remind me of oh, say, alien implants of foreign materials. Not that I've been abducted, that I know of. But the whole idea of it gets under my skin, so to speak. So has anyone had any problems like infections from microchips or maybe abscesses? Noticed any site pain or irritation? Any adverse side effects from having it done?
